Default The rebirth of the IC

Given Ed Ellis' choice of Illinois Central brown and orange for his equipment, it doesn't take too long to figure out how this "Illinois Company Rail Road" will be branded:

At least the old Grenada District has a ray of hope now, something it certainly didn't under ownership of a known line scrapper.

Not sure why the STB link has gone dead, but the quick summary is Iowa Pacific will be the operator of the former Grenada Railway in Mississippi now that it has been purchased by a local rail authority.
